What child doesn’t like pizza?
Being a dairy-free home (well apart from my husband) Pizza isn’t something we really eat. However, after our recent holiday when Gracie saw her Pa eat Pizza I promised I would make her one when we returned home.
Now I’m no baker, I leave that to my husband when things get too complicated! What I love about this recipe is that it’s extremely simple and you can make it right before you want to use it!
If you’re time poor use a good quality tomato pasta sauce (no refined sugar and low sodium content) and mix with tomato paste to make a lovely rich pizza base. As we’re dairy-free I sprinkle with nutritional yeast flakes. Nutritional yeast contains B-vitamins, folic acid, selenium, zinc, and protein. Spelt does contain gluten, but compared to wheat it’s much richer in nutrients and more easier to digest than wheat.
I like to make Gracie mini pizza’s out of the recipe as I think it’s easier for little hands.
